Author's comments:
This is my second "100%" speedrun for Solstice.

I just got a pair of brand new pair of Composite cables for my NES, as the RF cable I had been using for my entire life had gone bad. When I tried the new cables, I was stunned at how improved the audio and video quality were. I figured I'd celebrate by doing a speedrun of my favorite NES game, a game that I know better than I know my own house, Solstice.

This is a speedrun where I get a 100% completion rate without taking a single hit, which is a difficult task in itself; it means that I visit all 252 rooms, and collect every item. The run looks and sounds exponentially better than the last run, and is around half a minute faster, despite the route remaining mostly unchanged. In fact, aside from imperfections stemming from being only human, there's probably a combined amount of five seconds of mistimed jumps or walking in the wrong direction. Overall, this is a very clean run.

My previous effort on this game was very popular among the other seventeen people in the world that care about Solstice, and received a mention in a 1up.com article for my "borderline pathological" mastery of the game (which is true; I once had a minimalist speedrun that was faster than the tool-assisted emulator run at the time, meaning that I effectively beat the game faster than a computer). So, I'm very happy to have trumped the previous run, and to provide a much better-looking one in the process. Have fun.

I beat Solstice on every solstice. It's like my religion. By far the most in depth game for NES and also sadly one of the most unheard of games. It will always be my favorite. You sir are a god and a king among men. People should kneel before you in all your glory.
